Description: Long recognised as "The hardest table to get in Stafford", this is the training restaurant at Stafford College. It was formerly known as Earls Restaurant. With the move into the brand new Riverbank Building came larger premises, a new name and incredible views of landmarks like Stafford Castle, the windmill and Victoria Park. Food you won't forget at prices you won't believe!

I didn't really know what to expect when I booked here, despite the good reviews here, but the food and service were both first class.

We went for lunch, which was excellent value at £8.50 for 3 courses and coffee. Starters chosen were chicken satay and salmon fishcakes, main courses were duck in a black cherry sauce and roast pork loin and desserts were sticky toffee pudding and orange syllabub. All were very well prepared, but my favourite was the syllabub, which was delicious.

This was my first time at the Riverbank, but it won't be my last.

Had a very enjoyable evening in a warm and spaciou setting. The students were very friendly, attentive and professional throughout the evening. Our waitress understood the menu and answered any queries politely and without hesitation. The restaurant caters for all tastes, the vegetarian menu was excellent. I would recommend the restaurant to anyone who loikes an intersting food choice at great value. Beware though, you need to book in advance.....can fully understand why.
